How a Transmission Flush Could Benefit Your Vehicle, Grand Island, Nebraska

If your car has been under-performing, is making weird noises, or simply doesn’t seem to drive as well as it used to, your mechanic may recommend getting a transmission flush. A commonly overlooked maintenance component, a transmission flush can help clean your car’s engine and improve its overall performance and longevity. But what does this process entail, and should you get one for your vehicle? BG&S Transmissions of Grand Island is a transmission center servicing the Grand Island, NE, area. Below, their auto transmissions experts explain what a flush does and how it can help your vehicle.

During a transmission flush, your mechanic will first drain all the existing oil from your transmission. Then, using a special machine, a cleaning solution is passed through your car’s transmission to remove any dirt, debris, or gunk that may have accumulated. After your transmission is cleaned, new oil will be added to your car.

An oil change can help keep your vehicle lubricated and your transmission running smoothly. However, each one only drains about 20% to 40% of the total volume of oil in your car. So, not only is used oil left behind, but the dirt and debris that have accumulated in your transmission are left behind as well. Over time, this can affect your car’s performance. However, with a transmission flush, you can rest assured your car will run smoother than before.

If you need a transmission flush for your vehicle, call (800) 652-9280. For other services, including clutch repairs and transmission diagnostics, visit the BG&S Transmissions of Grand Island website.
